Given the recent uprising trend in Covid-19 cases, the Tripura government has decided to postpone final examinations for the students of Class 3 to 9 and Class 11 until further order considering the safety and security of the students. “All examinations scheduled earlier from class III to IX and XI shall be treated as postponed w.e.f. 26.04. 2021 until further order,” reads the official statement.
However, the ongoing Classes 10 and 12 pre-board examinations will be continued as per the guidelines issued earlier. Class 10 exams are slated to begin on May 19 and Class 12 board exams will begin on May 18.
“All the other instructions and guidelines already issued should remain operational,” the notice said.
Earlier the state government had ordered the suspension of offline classes and said that all colleges and universities will remain closed until further notice.
“Due to surges in Covid cases, it has been decided that from 17.04.2021 all the classes of schools, colleges, and universities which are under the state government (Including private Institutions) would remain closed until further order. Only the pre-scheduled exams will be held,” Mr. Nath tweeted earlier.
